Carrie Prejean: I Passed God's Test!

by at . Comments

Carrie Prejean has played the God card.

The Miss USA contestant - who has been all over the news for telling judge Perez Hilton that she believes marriage ought to be reserved for a man and woman - sat down with Fox News this week and actually said the ordeal is simply a test from God.

Right. She's a regular Jonah.


Here are a few excerpts from the fair and balanced interview:

On how she's feeling: Happy. This happened for a reason. By having to answer that question in front of a national audience, God was testing my character and faith. I'm glad I stayed true to myself.

On the question about gay marriage:  I knew he was controversial, and so was the question. Out of all the topics I studied up on, I dreaded that one, I prayed I would not be asked about gay marriage. If I had any other question, I know I would have won.

On her response: I have no regrets about answering honestly. [Perez Hilton] asked me for my opinion and I gave it to him. I have nothing against gay people, and I didn't mean to offend anyone in my answer.

On her post-pageant activity: I ate my first hamburger in a long time!

So, to recap: Carrie Prejean took part in a beauty pageant, in order to be asked a question about gay marriage, to which she responded by denying homosexuals basic human rights, which simply proved her faith to God, but doesn't mean she has anything against gay people. And her reward, after starving herself for months, was a hamburger.

Everyone got it?

The Left Screams Tolerance-where is their tolerance when someone disagrees with their views? Speak up America-last I remember-per the 1st Amendment-EVERYONE is entitled to free speech without being blasted. Don't be politically correct-speak what you truely believe. For those that read the bible, read Mathew Chapter 10. Anna Maria Butler

Pretty much every religion doesn't believe in homosexuality so it is obviously not just Christianity. Why can't civil union be enough? Do people not know how to compromise anymore. Apparently not anyone who constantly likes to act victimized. It is people like Perez Hilton who cause setbacks for their own cause. I think she is a beautiful courageous woman, and I would have said the same.

Dear Carrie:
I congratulate you for standing up for what you believe in. People of weak character would have taken the easy way out (or in). Now you've shown the whole world how beautiful you are. By the way I am an atheist, but I respect people who stand up for their beliefs. Never allow anyone to bully you.
Good Luck

Way to go Carrie!
Just when it seemed impossible for her to get more attractive, she goes and shows great character. The reason she sounded less articulate is because that answer is super-intimidating. Imagine fielding that question from a "How dare you not approve gay marriage!" celebrity that is the super snarky Perez Hilton? In my opinion, she came through with flying colors and is my Miss America.

I applaud Carrie for giving her honest opinion. God Bless You Carrie!

So, she lost her crown because she was honest in how she feels about GAY marriage? Free Speech still? I'm starting to wonder. Evidently, it's not okay to be truthful with your convictions, and I bet you many of those young naive girls feel the same and are thankful they were not asked the question.

The Hollywood Gossip can be as snide as it wants, a la Perez Hilton. The bottom line is that she spoke Biblical truth to an audience totally unprepared for it, and gladly pays the price. She is a hero.

Go Carrie!
Everyone on this board can go back and forth with Bible talk but at the end of the day this girl stood up for what she believed in. Simple as that. She wasn't trying to offend anyone, nor was she trying to push her views on anyone either. She was simply stating what she believed based of the question that was asked.
I live the more traditional life - married to a man - however it two homosexual individuals want to get married that's their business. I don't feel our country has a right to put a stamp on it and decide that for them.
At the end of the day, I could not be more happier for Carrie. She did the right thing and said exactly what she felt. The media and Perez H. are taking this way too far. It is what it is - move on. Let's celebrate who won Miss USA now!

I am so proud of Miss California! Perez Hilton should not have asked the question if he did not want to hear the answer. This is so typical of what is happening all over the world today, people get upset and try to "punish" the person if they do not like the way they respond to them. I am so thankful she had enough nerve and guts to stand for what she knows is right and what she believes in. I knew when she answered as she did he would try to "make her pay" for that answer. These questions are SUPPOSED to be their opinion and not what someone else thinks or wants to hear. It is such a shame that even the pageants are having to worry about being politically correct instead of giving their honest opinion. She will be rewarded for the stand she took and that is all that matters to her now.

Carrie Prejean Quotes

I think it's great that Americans are able to choose one or the other. We live in a land that you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage and, you know what, in my country and my family I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anyone out there but that's how I was raised and that's how I think it should be between a man and a woman.

Marriage is good. There is something special about unions of husband and wife. Unless we bring men and women together, children will not have mothers and fathers.
